New Rail Tracks in the U.S.

From: "Fabian Haunerland" FabianHaunerland@gmx.de

I am a German University Student in Transportation Economics at Dresden University of Technology, and I would like to ask a question which none of my German lecturers could answer:

Are there any railroads in the U.S. built within the last 10 years?
